2) Update on Lilydale Stabilization Project community meeting
Join your neighbors Tuesday, 1/23/2018, 6:30PM at the Baker Center. The City of St. Paul will be providing an update on stabilization of the “North Knob” within Lilydale Regional Park. The City received $925,000 in Disaster Relief Funds (DRAP) in early 2017. They have been working with the Ramsey Conservation District, Dakota County Conservation District, and Board of Soil and Water Resources to develop plans for bluff stabilization in this specific area and we would like to present the plans to the West Side community for comment.
3) February Health & Environmental Justice committee meeting
The Health & Environmental Justice Committee educates and empowers the West Side community to build and sustain a healthy equitable, and environmentally just neighborhood, while acknowledging the community that has been historically affected by environmental harms and centering their voices in the decision making process.
